Tidy homely motel. Cooking facility provided.Motel is only 5 minutes drive to the Marina where all the whale watch boats depart.So it is very handy. Though the motel is facing a major road the traffic noise at night was minimal. Air conditioner worked well. Bathroom facility was run of the mill type. The skylight window on roof of the bathroom...

Thank you Anthony for your comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay in our unit. Look forward to your return in the future. The only thing that worried us about your comments were "the OLD couple", (we still feel reasonably young) so I had a look in the mirror and maybe we have aged a lot since owning... More

This place would have got a 3 from me but terrible service brought it down to a 2. This place has potential apart from a few things. The service was awful. Because there wasn't any. Granted we arrived a couple of hours later than we suggested we would in our booking. However, we arrived within the time of the advertised... More

The Boat Harbour Resort is in a nice quiet part of Hervey Bay. Accommodation had everything I needed including ability to cook my own meals (Hot plate and Microwave) and undercover parking. Across the road is a beach perfect for those with small children or alternatively there is a pool onsite. Management were very helpful and common areas including garden... More

I stayed at the Boat Harbour Resort in the studio apartment for two nights with my wife and son. The room was clean and of a satisfactory standard as was the bathroom. I liked the fact the room had a kitchenette because we like to cook some meals to save money whilst on holiday. My wife and son loved the... More

I've stayed here a few times recently with my two children. It's a great place for the kids, quiet and safe. Close to a great little beach. The kids love the pool. Under cover parking. The rooms have good cooking facilities. Clean, tidy and value for money.

Chose this resort as it seemed value for money. Manager Robin was extremely helpful when I was trying to arrange things for my husband's 60th birthday. Upon arrival we were very happy with our studio room overlooking the pool. Facilities are everything you need. Room was lovely and clean and well appointed. Pool was pristine and we enjoyed an early... More

Seeking only one night prior to travelling to Fraser Island we chose the Boat Harbour Resort from the web. We found prices for accommodation in Hervey Bay to be on the high side, given the supply. The Resort is more like a motel and located at Urangan in a quiet area. Our room was on the lower floor in a... More

Thank you for your review and we trust you will visit us again. We acknowledge the fact that our building is getting older (it was built in 1996 out of Fraser Island hardwood with carpeted timber flooring) so is it is very hard to totally eliminate hearing someone above if they move around a lot at night. Maybe next time... More

This was our second stay at Boat Harbour Resort, having previously stayed in 2011 - we liked both the resort and Hervey Bay so much that this was the first place we booked for our 2013 trip to Australia.

Our room was clean and spacious with kitchen, TV and bathroom, next to the room there was a swimming pool though the season didn´t invite to have a bath. Very kind owner. We chose it because its proximity to Fraser Magic 4WD where we hired a 4WD to visit Fraser Island and have no complains about them.

We found Boat Harbour Resort when stranded in Hervey Bay during the floods (Jan 2013) the Managers were extremely helpful & caring, they couldn't do enough for you. The pool was clean & very inviting once the rain cleared. Rooms are a little dated but good value for money.

We were more than happy to look after these guests along with others who were also trapped in Hervey Bay because of the weather conditions. We are here to please and want guests to go away having had a good experience and maybe want to return to our place whenever in the Fraser Coast region in future. More
